that is might be less important in a campaign have had in this election or do you think it's been the same thing for a long time and nothing new here? >> i guess it's outside of the campaign's control. all of this happens organically. it's no longer information flows top down. it is surround and it is bottom up and there is no private space anymore. so the time honor tradition in politics of going to one group and saying one thing and to another group and saying something different you can't do anymore. so when you try to do it you'll be caught and exposed and your character will be revealed and in a lot of instances it will have a negative consequence. but for sure when you look at the campaigns and what goes on, the campaigns to a fundamental degree have lost control of the ability to control the message and to control the dialogue. everybody with a facebook page, everybody with a twitter account has an outlet to weigh in and shape the narratives and the story. so the ability to navigate that raging river so to speak and go with the flow is an important aspect of a presidential campaign. >> an
president obama's former campaign manager david plouffe and steve schmidt talk about the 2012 election. both mr. playoff and mr. schmidt attended the university of delaware. >> welcome back to the national agenda program. i'm director for the center of political communication. this is the final program of the 2012 presidential election season. i'm very very pleased that all of you are here tonight and i know that's a tribute to our two guest speakers this evening. two years ago in the wake of the sha lacking president obama took in the midterm congressional elections, the architect of the president's 2008 victory david plouffe stood on this stage and predicted the electorate voting in 2012 would be more diverse and younger than it was just two years earlier. he talked then about the growing latino electorate and he predicted that the obama campaign in 2012 would have to take advantage of those demographic opportunities. plouffe also predicted on this stage that the american people in 2012 would have had enough of republicans who were like glenn beck, sara palin and rush limbaugh. we are just
's not unique to this election or republican party. in 2004 many democrats believed he had a device on his shoulder so he would be given instructions during the debate. it's snanty. i think in our politics today both parties want to construct an image of their opponent that is not grounded in reaty. so the alternative universe. there are two. one is the romney campaign had an unrealistic view of what the electorate was going to be and that was one of the reasons they lost. certainly one of the reasons they went in the election confident. th wasn't an act. they thought they were going to win. but there is this view of barack obama. if you read and watch the conservative entertainment complex how could this guy get re-elected because we're socialist and week on terism and we're not honest and tt's not how most of america cease the president. even those that voted against us, most of them don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's an underestimating of your opponent's strength and the reality of how people view them. d there was a ridicule that i think -- i don't fully unders
endangered american freedom and back in the "leave it to beaver" days they wouldn't even elect a catholic president until j.f.k. gave a speech ensuring protestant clergy he wouldn't take orders from the pope. he would take orders from something that starts with a "p" and resembles a wrinkled old man wearing a hat. ( laughter ) ( applause ) "ask not what you can do for your country. let's just find some chicks." how do you think traditional americans would have reacted to a mormon candidate for president? seeing as in 1857, president buchanan sent the army to utah to fight them. bernie, bernie, bill, fox, you don't need to worry so much. ... what you are demonstrating is the health and vitality of america's greatest tradition-- a fevered ruling class lamenting the rise of a new et cetera nickly diverse new class one that will destroy all that is virtuous and good and bring the american experiment crashing to the ground. except you're forgetting one thing-- that is the american experiment. ap ethnic group arriving on america's shores, to be reviled, living in scallor, or if they're lucky,
congress so, while the election may have changed the atmosphere and sort of the story line for the members, the actual people themselves are still there. so they've not changed their ideologies at all. i think that the problem is that you have john boehner, president and mitch mcconnell negotiating with the exact same congress that they had when they couldn't make a deal the last time. so i think until the personnel change, i'm not sure you can get a deal. >> and juan kessler, the fact checker for "the washington post," has reported that, you know, you have to come from, like, some point point. you have to have a negotiating point to start with. he said democrats and republicans haven't even agreed on a baseline yet. they're about $3 trillion apart because of ending the wars, medicare, other cuts. so how do you come to some agreement in what is a numbers game really if you don't even have a number to start with? >> i think one of the things we'll see happen here is the idea of a grand bargain, of one deal that gets all this stuff averted between now and -- it's not going to happen. it does
from the poor election day showing among hispanics are planning beyond immigration and visas for scientists and technology students and those with green cards to bring their immediate families to the u.s. >> one scrutiny in operations fast and furious, to the controversy over the surprise departure of a cia director. chief intelligence yont catherine herridge has that story for us, good evening. >> good evening, the regular republican on the senate judiciary committee, senator grassley, wants them to know who signed off on the fbi investigation and mon storing david petraeus's personal e-mail and what is the relationship with his biographer came to light after a fbi background check. and the department official under president bush said that they seemed to be investigating the benghazi controversy with the same particular approach he used in the fast and furious gun running scandal. >> senator grassley's questions covered a very broad scope from the beginning of investigation throughout it up until its conclusion and it seems to me they want to get to the who, what, when and

the military offensive in gaz a. this is weeks before the general election. he wants to focus on his personal life. there is more to this story i think. angry workers and a fire in bangladesh. many workers were trapped in the building because of no emergency exits. some of the clothes were made for walmart and sears and clothing line of sean puppy combs. shellie moore catit po will announce her cand date for u.s. senate. she is a pro choice republican and she is a test of the gop's ability to expand the appeal to voters, the congresswoman will run for democrat jay rockefeller's seat. the senator is not saying if he will run again in 2014. it is an exciting day today. shoppers will be pounding the keyboards and not the pavement looking for on line bargains. this year's cyber monday will be a big success with americans expected to spend 1. 5 billion bucks up 20 percent from last year. i saw the deals last night. buy one and 60 percent off on the other. it is enticing. >> brian: deals are for real. and today's on line . happy to see the retailers busy over the weekend. talking about the fiscal c
weeks ago when john boehner after the election essentially said, there's nothing we can do about obama care. it's going into effect next year. people are going to have to start enrolling, those exchanges are going to have to get up and running. he saw a revolt among his house republicans and republicans across the united states, just for saying it. now john boehner is doing a little backtracking. he wrote in the cincinnati enquirer, his hometown newspaper, the president's health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country's entire economy. we can't afford it and we can't afford to leave it intact. so try as they might, remember the last congress republicans passed a lot of bills out of the house of representatives that tore apart obama care. as even the president calls it now. they didn't go anywhere in the senate and meanwhile, alex, after the thanksgiving break, the principles are expected to get back together to begin negotiating in earnest. as you're right the clock is ticking. just a lit
to hear because it seems that before the election there was actually some uniform opinion this absolutely was going to get done by the end of the year. what changed? >> well, it's so easy to say in general we're going to work this out, talk, and have the nice photo-ops, but when it comes down to dollars and cents it's the same old argument that democrats want to see some kind of an extension of tax cults for those making less than $250,000 a year but not for the wealthy. and the republicans still want to see some proposed cut, some kind of numbers on how they're going to reduce entitlements, especially medicare spending. so we're not close to actually having those kind of talks yet. what we have right now is a pr phase, a public relations phase, where both sides are trying to work the business community or work main street behind their side of the argument. >> and it does seem that we have a split not just about what needs to get done or how we get to this deal, dana, but about the urgency of what would happen if we didn't come to a deal. the white house put out that 14-page report on mon
, caught up with polls. resort have seen in this election cycle. and i think with latinos we cite polling with specific issues but is that a better understanding of where they're coming from you will get an understanding of why they're answering the questions that way. but i believe with the latino community, we lost the latino vote because of immigration. if we would have a better position on immigration, from the get-go, from the primary governor romney would've been competitive and it would've been competitive in those battleground states where the latino vote was decisive. and, finally, we have to stop being rockefeller republicans. we are not the party of the 47%. you know, when governor romney said what he did last week that obama won because it gives to latinos and other minorities, that's insulting. latinas didn't vote for obama because obamacare. i think he is engaging obama in the same type of class warfare discussion that obama wants to have. i think we have to go back to the conservative populism of ronald reagan, which is to talk about the economy. but i would say something i
, thank you. >> gregg: contest in the background on egypt's president morsi. he was elected in june of this year after a revolution overthrowing president hosni mubarak. he is head 6 muslim brotherhood. he is the first freely elected president and first islamist to be head of an arab state. they accuse him of trying to monopolize powers, the courts and media and parliament and in the end, sharia law, imposing strict islamic principles. >> heather: it raises new questions coming one day after egypt help broker a cease-fire in the gaza strip. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton joined us earlier to weigh in saying it's no coincidence. >> he didn't wait but one day before moving here. so whether he had a wink and a nod from president obama or whether whether he felt emboldened in the wake of the cease-fire to believe the u.s. would not criticize him or do anything major to stop this power grab, i think we'll have to find out in the next few days. the timing is not coincidental. you can bet on that. >> heather: coming up the latest reaction from the white house to the turmoil
an election in january, so there's no real hope that there will be a longer-term agreement before that election, and after that it is anyone's guess as to what type of an agreement they will have here and will anybody be able to forge an agreement that will lead to a lasting peace? that is still a very big question going forward, rick. rick: conor powell live on the ground in jerusalem, thanks. heather: well, u.n. ambassador susan rice defending those early comments on the benghazi terror attacks just days after the raid on the u.s. consulate. ambassador rice went on five sunday talk shows and said that the attack grew out of a spontaneous to protest over an anti-muslim film. and now she says those remarks were based on the intelligence she was given. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. heather: national security correspondent jennifer griffin
question. >> jonathan, weshld not call off the next presidential election and hand it to hillary? >> that is it. >> believe it or not. let's do that. >> even if toure was channelling nate silver right now, i would say we should hold the election. >> i disagree. i disagree, jonathan. >> no way he writes a book about hillary clinton thinking secretary of state is the high point of the career. >> right. she would win. i wouldn't say 100.0%. >> i'll give you that. >> 99.5%, that's what i say. >> anyway, jonathan allen, thank you for joining us. >>> up next, the great thanksgiving getaway. stick with us for the turkey day survival guide. we are the cycle after all. we know how to move. wasn't my daughter's black bean soup spectacular?

election. what will you do? go to disneyland. >> exactly. >> people accuse him of being there all alistening. >> but look. if you look at that list of people we had on politico's home page, 18 republicans. here's the good news. four minorities and no one old enough to take social security. if you're a republican and just wiped out in this election, you're ready to look to 2016. you don't care about mitt romney anymore. you're like, okay, what do we have? we have a bright future here with women, minorities, with younger people and it's never too early. we're politico -- political junkies here. marco rubio has already been to iowa. >> there is a deep bempbl of smart talent on the right. several names of front-runners. but take a listen to what jeb bush jr. and senator ran paul are saying about that very issue. >> your dad going to run for president? >> i don't know. no comment. i certainly hope so. >> going to be another paul for president campaign? >> that's classified. i can't tell you that. you don't have clearance to hear that. you know, i want to be part of the national debate.
is going to be your friend every time on every issue. he's elected in a free and democratic election. we ought to be dealing with him. we are. the president appears to have established a good relationship with him and, remember, continuation of the peace agreement with israel, while very much in israel's strategic interest, is also important to egypt. they have a very difficult time in economic terms, and let's not forget that the revolution there was indigenous, it was local and it was, in large part, over domestic issues, jobs, education, health care, what concerns people everywhere. he needs a stable situation there. he needs to concentrate on economic growth, providing jobs. he obviously has to recognize and acknowledge public opinion, which is an important factor there as here. but, for now, i think it's a positive step. what he's done with respect to the ceasefire. >> you saw a reporter in gaza who talked about the many celebrations throughout the day on thursday there. has hamas emerged stronger from this last eight days of the conflict? there are those who suggest that's the case
. they are falling for this republican line of crap. republicans lost this election. this was mitt romney's deal. and president obama said we have to have an balanced deal we're going to cut spending to the bone, but you have also got to get rid of those bush tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans, and put it back where it was under president clinton, the greatest economic growth in our lifetime. americans went with president obama's idea. it's now time for republicans to accept this is what the americans want. but instead this is more republican propaganda, and i just kills me that so many of my colleagues in the media are falling for it. republicans are saying we'll break the pledge. who cares. they say they are going to break the pledge, bfd, they say they are going to offer new revenue. okay. sure. but where from? they say will not, no no, no, tax rates for the wealthy of americans. we will not raise taxes on the 1%. we will only accept new revenue from closing loopholes. that means your mortgage interest deduction is history, and your child care deduction is history. t
. [indiscernible] >> what matters is japan has an election december 16 and -- may be back. that was his strategy that if you put together a things -- i want to hear what you think -- i know you cannot talk one way or another about the prime ministers in your position, but this japan really need to invest in structures that balance -- are you worried, given your experience, you have to balance china much more vigorously than in the past? >> yes, most frequently asked questions for diplomats in japan is do we see china as a threat? our answer is, we would like to see china develop as a chance and not a threat. >> what do you think will really happen? what's there is the assumption that china continues to be an international stakeholder in the international community and respect the international order with other countries. on the assumption i think we can lock them china's advancement, the development in order to maintain the prosperity of east asia, while asia-pacific as a whole, it turned is very critical element. we want to embrace of china as a kind of source of the prosperity in the region. i
to seek an election to form a union. and that without seeking to do that, in essence, what the uscw's trying to do here, says walmart, is mount a stealth effort to unionize the walmart work force. again, 1.4 million people across the united states. we expected that we would have a ruling on that complaint of unfair labor practices from the national labor relations board sometime yesterday, over thanksgiving, so that it would apply to what we're seeing here. but it never came. typically, those complaints take six weeks to adjudicate. it was filed in little rock. the memphis regional field office was handling it, but so far no ruling. and to the national labor relations board apparently keeping its hands off today's activities. gregg: james rosen, if you're able to get somebody there to put a subject with a predicate, we'll come back to you. thanks very much. >> reporter: all right, thank you. [laughter] patti ann: well, as you can see, unions are backing these protests. are they accomplishing anything? charles gasparino is a fox business network senior correspondent. charles, thanks
of the issues about regulation and so now that we have the election over, we have to focus on passing the sites. we take that step and we focus on them creating these new industries, i am confident we will remain the most logical relationship. other nations was are racing or were and there is a reason to be concerned. i look at it may be optimistically by saying the losses have fall. >> michael has been an optimist and he's saying we have a chance here. can i invite some pessimism >> i am fundamentally optimistic. [laughter] >> unbelievable. a budget guy. if you think about the structure of the budget which reflects the value of evidence in the political system, we have huge programs which are basically legacy programs serving all americans and those programs are crushing the discretionary accounts, where we fund national-security, education, the core investments. this allows the path to crush of the future. it is against what they talked about. we have to agree that innovation will solve health care, educational, energy. look at what fracking has done. we're not doing any of the is thing is. >
promised the people of egypt when you were elected president. >> reporter: now the egyptian president is putting himself above zwrui additional oversight they stressed the move was only temporary designed to hold people accountable in the previous regime but nevertheless democrats are nervous. one leading senator was asked what message should obama give the egyptian leader. >> he has to express those concerns and say obviously we wanted this change to be not just democratic but also be supportive of stability and also minorities and human rights in egypt. >> reporter: with the danger of instability the egyptian stock market was down more than 9%. >> heather: thank you very much. >> gregg: new york con man peter king announced he will be stepping down from the committee. he is obligated to step down because of term limits self-imposed by the republican party as chairman he helped ensure that new york received crucial federal funding to help combat terrorism. his replacement is not yet announced. he will devote to his new time as the homeland's panel of counterterrorism subcommittee. >>
talks to us live. three weeks removed from election today and suddenly americans are being hit by an on shraugt of neon sthraut of new campaigning. a look at the white house now where press jay carney just began today's briefing. he reiterated that president obama will not sign legislation that extends lower tax rates for the wealthy in particular. that comes as top republicans in the senate draws a line in the sand saying political ideology cannot rule the negotiations. >> the only balanced approach is one that includes real and lasting reforms. so republicans have stepped out of our comfort zone, we've been clear about what we'll do and what we won't, and yet we remain at an impasse. leading us to why ask why? because a vocal minority on the hard left continues to argue from the leaders of their party from the president on down that democrats in washington should do absolutely nothing about short term, or long term spending problems. this is the thelmand louise crowd, the ones who dream about higher taxes and bigger government it will pay for, regardless of the impact on jobs
counties, you know, the election may be over but the campaign continues. there are republicans around in these counties around philadelphia, three of the four districts, as a matter of fact, who can be counted only as swing voters in the house of representatives and that's the battleground where the fight is playing out, steve. >> okay. thanks as always. >>> now bringing in "the washington post" political columnist dana millbank a. point of emphasis is tax rates for the wealthy saying in the campaign to go up, he wants to make sure they go up now. dick durbin, number two senate democrat and close to the white house and gave a speech yesterday about the entitlement aspect. medicare, medicaid. the entitlement aspect and basically said we don't want entitlements to be part of the immediate talks january 1st but think as democrats they should be part of longer terms talks for next year. i'm just wondering, is there a sense from the white house among democrats of what it is they're prepared to give in on on terms of entitlement? >> not enough to satisfy the republicans, this's for sure. th
with president obama's biographers after his re-election. hear from journalists ron suskind, author of "the confidence men: wall street, washington, and the education of a president." the atlantic, aspen institute, and the newseum hosted the forum. >> we have one titled "why did he win and why did he lose"? it was about obama, and now the title is "how did he win?" we have three authors of excellent books about president obama, john alter, ron suskind, and draifd maraniss who will be interviewedded by a great biographer, and my former editor, walter isakson, and asked the question what is he really like? >> and where is the profile? >> yeah. it's only laptop. i'll get it to you after this is over. walter, thank you. >> margaret, thank you, thank you, all, great to be here. [applause] david, for those who can't figure out which is wish, david, jonathan, and that's ron. the next book -- in fact, starting in the middle with john. talking about -- i can say your title; right? >> well, it would be the first time, but that's all right. >> breaking news here. those who like the fall can,s things f
house. their first post-election meeting, jon. jon: wow! what is the latest from republicans on what the president has to say today? >> reporter: speaker john boehner just had a news conference on capitol hill and he expressed frustration because he is saying look, republicans put some tax revenues on the table but what they see the democratic side trying to pull entitlement reforms like medicare off the table. john boehner basically saying he thinks the spending situation is sort of a freight train that is coming at the nation right now. republicans senator mitch mism the leader in the senate -- mitch mcconnell blasted the president of saying he is doing is too much campaigning and not governing. take a listen. >> it is over. he won. congratulations. we have a hard deadline here however. and it is still, he is still out on the campaign trail, kind of celebrating. this is the problem. if the president really wants to reach an dwreechlt he needs to be talking with members of his own party right here in washington trying to broker an agreement, not out there firing up crowds and giving
people who have signed on. they say they plan to fight the lawsuit. >>> time now 5:12, the election is over but president barack obama is campaigning again. as allison burns reports from the washington d.c. newsroom, allison burns has more on avoiding the fiscal cliff. >> reporter: he will sit down at the white house with some who backed mitt romney and also will be trying to sell his plan to avoid the so called fiscal cliff about spending cuts that kick in at the end of next month. it was another down day on wall street as investors grow increasingly worried about whether they can avoid financial disaster. they are deadlocked over raising taxes on well, the they are americans. -- wealthier americans. sea think he should stop campaigning. >>> they are working out an agreement and he is back on the campaign trail, presumably with the same old talking points we are quite familiar with. >> reporter: but they say the white house is fully engaged while taking his case to the public. >> now that the election is over, we should stop talking to them about these vital issues i think is bad a
: this is disconcerting once again. instid of members that we elect to congress to get things done for us. they can't sit in the room for a photoop and now back out on the campaign trial and people making youtube videos about what they think about the fiscal cliff. that's what the administration is asking people to do to convince members of congress to vote. what about saving that time and actually doing the job we elected you to do to sit in the room and get something done. >> steve: according to the president's side. he learned a valuable lesson in the summer of 2011 when they tried to get a grand bargain with john boehner. he will negotiate with the congress. we'll go out campaign style. it never ends . gretch mentioned twitter, they have launchhed a hash tag my 2 k to get people to explain how it impacts them. it is turning out to be a dud. >> brian: two things to be noted. dick durbin gave the encouraging quote. everything should be on the table. we have to get ourselves out of i had to read it three times because he is number two ranking democrat. and i read behind the scenes, it is a disaster in t
may recall very quickly here that during his first white house news conference after his re-election, president obama took exception to republican senators critical of rice saying, quote if they want to come after anyone, they should come after him, after me. bill: he said it with force. kelly, thank you. waiting on the meeting in washington. martha: ambassador rice, reportedly as we were saying one of the top candidates to replace secretary of state hillary clinton and the president seemed to lay down the gauntlet to senators mccain and graham if the first news confriends after the election. kelly referred to this moment. let's look at it from november the 14th. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. martha: that is really the feistiest moment of that news conference. the president, who you see here, with ambassador susan rice and former president bill clinton and others they are described as close and president obama made it clear that republican opposition from will not keep him from nominating her for second irat tha
. they are blaming obamacare on this, but this was before the election the price of health care was going up. across the board, we are not dealing with problems at hand. both sides of the aisle, those that don't want to give an answer to this before we go over the fiscal cliff, they're not responding to the will of the people. they will be voted out. there's no doubt. if we have some very lovely and caring republicans that are very conservative and we love them, but we will vote them out if they don't fix this. we are holding them responsible as we are holding the democrats. host: thanks for the call. we will continue discussing the fiscal cliff and taking your calls. we want to point out some other news going on in the world. here's the front page of the boston globe this morning -- clinton was dispatched by president obama to israel and is meeting today with egyptian officials and palestinian officials as well. the headline from the tribune -- late tuesday night clinton met with benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and plans to go to the west bank on wednesday. clinton is preparing to step down early n
of the famed civil rights activist jesse jackson. earlier this month, he easily won re-election for a ninth term to the house of representatives. despite the fact that he essentially disappeared in june. since then, he has been in and out of the mayo clinic receiving treatment for bipolar disorder and gastrointestinal issues. the congressman mentioned those health problems in the letter of resignation that he submitted today to house speaker john boehner's office. but he also wrote, quoting here: i am aware of the ongoing federal investigation into my activities and i am doing my best to address the situation sonsably, cooperate with the investigators and accept responsibility for my mistakes for they are my mistakes and mine alone. mike tobin is live for us in chicago with more. mike, did this come as a shock to anyone? >> no. for the reasons you just mentioned, no one was surprised that the congressman stepped down. in fact it was a question of when it would happen. however, fellow politicians and friends here in chicago were quick to jump to the congressman's defense and say his resigna
days after the election to resign instead of letting voters select his successor on november 6th. congressman bobby rush the only person who beat barack obama in an election is sticking um for the embattled 47-year-old. >> i don't think that anybody has been duped. i think that that this is a process that no one really knew exactly what was going to happen. >> jackson was under investigation for allegedly skimming campaign funds to remodel his house, among other things. and in a letter to speaker boehner said i am aware of the ongoing federal investigation into my activities and i'm doing my best to address the situation responsibly, cooperate with the investigators and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alone. within four days, illinois governor pat quinn is expected to announce the date of a special election to replace expwraction and former congresswoman debby halverson who lost to jackson in a primary this year hasn't ruled out another run. she also made clear she doesn't think much of the nine term congressman. >> i hate to use the word
of things going on in politics as ever. we had regional elections in spain. yields you can see slightly higher, but still well below 6%. now, these regional elections fairly important because we know catalonia has been pushing on on independence. now, it looks less likely we'll get that referendum, but not because people in catalonia are any less eager on a separatist movement. just that they didn't vote for the main guy who is proposing it. they voted for competitor party which is makes it slightly harder in the short term for them possibly to get a referendum going. so eases the pressure in the short term but means there is still a longer term problem there. catalonia is one of those regions that still has very large deficits, as well. so the politics in spain slightly skewed as they will be, but not so much pressure on rajoy at the moment. unlikely to ask for assistance in the short term. we also have another euro group meeting take, back in brussels, yes, i know, we seem to have one every week. they may come up with a long term financing deal for greece. finally talking about debt f
